What Is the Right Resume for Me?


Template for a Chronological resume
Sample Chronological resumes


The chronological resume is organized by job titles with the most recent position listed first.

Employer Rating:

Employers tend to prefer the chronological resume because the format lists prior positions beginning with the most current. Employers perceive this resume style as fact-based and easily skimmed.

Works Best For:

For job seekers with solid experience and a logical job history, the chronological resume is the most effective. Career changers and those who lack formal on-the-job experience (like new graduates) find this resume the most difficult to write.
